Windlifter, Planes: Fire & Rescue

Windlifter is a member of The Smokejumpers, an organization working to fight against wildfires.

Bio

Windlifter is a heavy-lift helicopter who can hoist dozens of trees or a huge tank of fire retardant. The American Indian’s wisdom is vast—he’s chock full of fire folklore, and his connection to nature allows him to sense fires before they’re even spotted. The former lumberjack became a firefighter to help others, and no mission is too big for Windlifter.

Planes: Fire & Rescue

In Planes: Fire & Rescue, Windlifter helps to put out all of the wildfires with the rest of the Smokejumpers, though hesitant to do so at times.

Personality

Windlifter is a quiet "gentle giant" who only talks when he needs to.

Livery

Windlifter is painted almost entirely green, except his bold white stripe that wraps around him and his cargo hold. His cargo hold is used to store fire retardant.

Model

Windlifter appears to be modeled after a Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane.

Occupation

Windlifter works as a firefighter in Piston Peak National Park.
